Badger natural sunscreen products a must for kids and babies

I always hesitate to put commercial sunscreen on my kids’ skin, as the ingredients sometimes read like a house of horrors.

Problem is, finding natural, decent stuff usually involves huge expense and the schlep of trawling around the web trying to determine what’s best. Then there’s postage and packaging, the possibility of a pretty new product going bang and thus out of stock.

But – I have discovered a brilliant product and it works. Happily, it’s also from a well-known and secure brand. I’m super-excited about it, because the ingredient list is fabulous, the price is decent and it’s animal-friendly too.

Badger suncreen has the added benefit of being an insect repellent. Bonus! So, when I put it on my kids, it’ll keep mozzies and other bugs away too.

Honestly? There’s no better sunscreen out there. And yes, it’s perfectly safe for babies too. In fact, there’s a lot of information on Badger products, so I’m pasting that below.

Have Fun Outdoors!  Be Safe in the Sun!

Most of us have weekends off and tend to want to spend them outdoors enjoying nature. So when you are out in the sun having fun, wear clothing that will protect your skin as much as possible, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes, wear a hat and use sunscreen!  If you can, try and limit your exposure to UV rays by staying out of the sun during peak hours.

Due to popular demand, Badger created a dual product that is a sunscreen that is easy-to-apply, safe and provides natural protection for the whole family as well as an insect repellent, so now you really can enjoy your time outside. With a natural formula, Badger SPF 30 Anti-bug sunscreen protects you and your family from sunburn while repelling insects. One product; double protection. DEET-free insect repellent – independently lab tested for efficacy and shown to be effective for over 4 hours.

Badger sunscreens have earned the best ratings for safety and efficacy by the Environmental Working Group(EWG ) – most recently the EWG recommended Badger sunscreens over 1,400 commonly available sunscreens.

Badger sun blocks provide broad spectrum protection  and protect you from UVA and UVB rays (UVA protection tested as ‘Superior 4 stars/PA+++’).

Certified Natural by the Natural Products Association. Most of our sunscreens contain more than 80% Certified Organic ingredients.

All sunscreens now internationally compliant in Canada, Japan, EU, Australia & New Zealand. The US FDA sunscreen regulations are more lax than these other countries. Badger sunscreens meet or surpass the more stringent international protection and safety regulations.

The Badger Face Stick is now water resistant for at least 80 minutes of activity in the water or sweating. All Badger sunscreens start working on application (no waiting) and stay on skin when you sweat (won’t run and drip into your eyes) or play in the water (water resistant for at least 40 minutes). Badger sunscreen allows your skin to breathe. 

 The Badger formula is creamy, moisturising, high in antioxidants and pleasant to use with its base ingredients of USDA Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter.  Contains no petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, preservatives, chemical emulsifiers and dyes. They’re either fragrance-free or the mild natural fragrance is derived from pure essential oils.

While non-micronized zinc oxide leaves a strong residue on the skin (like white paint), micronized zinc oxide provides better protection and appears less whitening when rubbed in. Badger’s micronized zinc oxide particles are a larger size than many other products on the market, therefore there’s less chance of it being absorbed into the skin and causing damage, and it’s currently coated with an inert silicone-based substance that helps make the formula safe and effective – even for young kids.

All SPF 30 sunscreens are now SPF 30+ (average SPF=34 after water resistance testing).

Packaged in BPA and Phthalate-free, recyclable #2 plastic containing more than 50% PCR material, Badger is environmentally friendly and safe for marine life and reefs. Our sunscreens have passed independent laboratory biodegradable testing.

The range is certified by Leaping Bunny, meaning not only are products not tested on animals, but none of the suppliers test the ingredients on animals either.
